Last night, Don Cherry echoed my thoughts when he praised the fans who have been watching the game at Maple Leaf Square.    Over the past few years we’ve witnessed what can happen in cities like Montreal and Vancouver, when a small group of pajama-party-terrorists rile up a crowd and turn a city into a disgraceful display of uncivilized and disrespectful insanity.   People often wonder why the majority of Maple Leafs fans aren’t overly excitable or demonstrative when attending a hockey game. My honest belief is that Torontonians just aren’t that way. It’s a conservative attitude that is always reflected in the way we live, and why Toronto and the province of Ontario are the envy of the world.   Glass Bangers I know many of you will disagree, but this is an act that stems from the overly aggressive mindset that has slowly seeped into most arenas, and until the past two seasons was something that was rarely seen in Toronto. Thankfully, it’s still a relatively sparse activity by fan percentage, but I would prefer to see it stopped in all arenas, because it’s barbaric and makes for bad TV.    A constant banging sound oozing from your sound system has no appeal, and the act is the equivalent to restless monkey’s banging on a cage.   I hope the citizens of Toronto continue to lead the way, and set an example for the civilized world by demonstrating what it is to be the centre of the hockey universe, and one of the greatest cities in the world.   Great post, Sonny.   Doesn’t matter if I’m at the ACC or in front of my tv; my heart skips a beat, I hold my breath, I jump out of my seat, I clap my hands( even though I’m the only one in front of the tv), I sigh, I swear, I yell at the tv,, I give the ” up yours” sign, I talk to the players through the tv, etc.   But always with class.                 :-(, my 12 year old daughter was downstairs watching the game with me and I shouted F%#%! after the Bruins scored.  I never swear in front of the kids or very much at all actually… source: http://fans.mapleleafs.nhl.com/community/index.php?/topic/68574-stay-classy-toronto/

Boston Bruins vs Toronto Maple Leafs Game 7 {Online Live Streaming} I Watch Bruins vs Maple Leafs 7 Online ^NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs^

  “I probably haven’t played a game as big as this,” said Leaf forward Jay McClement on Monday. “Game 7, Stanley Cup playoffs – it doesn’t get much bigger than that.”   The Bruins, meanwhile, took their opening round series against the Washington Capitals to seven games just last season. The Caps would eliminate the Bruins when Joel Ward scored the 2-1 overtime winner.   The Bruins will be competing in a Game 7 for the eighth time in the past six seasons. In 2011, the Bruins became the first club in NHL history to win three Game 7s in one playoff year. Despite that run, the Bruins are 3-5 in those eight games.   The two teams will meet in a Game 7 for just the third time in their 89-year history and for the first time since 1959, when the Maple Leafs skated away with a 3-2 win at Boston Garden to win their Semifinal series. The Bruins hold a clear-cut advantage in Game 7 experience with 21 players having played in a previous series-decider. The Leafs on the other hand, have just five players with previous experience and none having played in more than two.   The Leafs became the 48th team in Stanley Cup history to force a Game 7 after erasing a 3-1 deficit. source: http://www.gameinformer.com/blogs/members/b/icehockeyplus_blog/archive/2013/05/13/game7.aspx

Joffrey Lupul will forever be haunted by Leafs’ Game 7 loss

Or, depending on your viewpoint, Toronto’s stunning collapse. A 4-1 lead midway through the third period was down to a 4-2 lead with 1:30 to go. That was down to a tie game with :30 left . It finally became a 5-4 Bruins victory when Patrice Bergeron completed one of the most amazing Game 7s that you will ever see. In any sport. The morning after, it still stings for the Leafs. And it will continue to sting. How long? For Joffrey Lupul it will be a really, really long time. That hockey game will haunt me until the day I die… — Joffrey Lupul (@JLupul) May 14, 2013 Ouch. It’s tough not to feel for the Maple Leafs even if you aren’t a Toronto fan. source: http://www.cbssports.com/nhl/blog/eye-on-hockey/22243646/joffrey-lupul-will-forever-be-haunted-by-leafs-game-7-loss

Johnston: No words for Maple Leafs collapse

That meant the second round would start in Toronto. Home-ice advantage was well within reach for the youthful team that could. How about that? “I don’t think many people gave us a shot to win this series and with 10 minutes to go in the third period it looked like we were going to,” Kadri said. Except Boston would not go quietly in those remaining minutes. First Nathan Horton beat James Reimer with a wrist shot through traffic at 9:18. The scoreboard read 4-2. “Still some life in the Bruins,” said Hockey Night in Canada play-by-play man Jim Hughson, correctly reading the situation. Sophomore Leafs defenceman Jake Gardiner, who reaffirmed his importance to the organization despite some blunders in this series, was on the ice and returned to the bench. He sensed a change in his teammates. There was suddenly a bad feeling in the air. source: http://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/johnston-no-words-for-maple-leafs-collapse/

Leafs blow by Bruins in Game 5

Boston’s goaltender was forced to make 19 saves in the first period because of the Bruins’ mistakes. Fortunately for the Bruins, the game remained in a 0-all stalemate after the first 20 minutes. “I think they just said, ‘Take this and let’s throw everything at them,’ and they did,” Rask said. “They got a lot of shots, a lot of scoring chances, and we survived the first, fell behind in the second on that power play. We played good for half the game; it’s just not enough.” Toronto eventually gained a 1-0 lead, scoring a short-handed goal at 11:27 of the second period. Boston had control in the offensive zone, but defenseman Andrew Ference couldn’t keep the puck in at the blue line and it turned into a breakaway for Tyler Bozak , who notched his first goal of this series to give Toronto the advantage. The Maple Leafs went up 2-0 at 1:58 of the third period, an even-strength goal by Clarke MacArthur . Despite a relentless attack in the final period, the Bruins couldn’t storm back and suffered the loss. “We always talk about being mentally ready and being mentally sharp, but that wasn’t the case today,” Bruins defenseman Dennis Seidenberg said. “I’m sure everybody wanted it, but it’s about actually doing it and going out on the ice and executing. “We came out flat in the first. Our breakout was sloppy. source: http://espn.go.com/boston/nhl/story/_/id/9264156/2013-nhl-playoffs-toronto-maple-leafs-blow-boston-bruins-game-5
